A little bit of Pretty Sweet....

Hello again,

Just popping in to share a quick make with you today....not a DT make this time, this ones just for fun!

I thought I'd challenge myself to do monochrome using only the greys in my Graph'it Marker Pens.  I have already shown the image on its own on my facebook page (here) but I had time (a rare chance) to make it straight up into a card!  I hope you like it.....

The main image is the beautiful Amelia Roses and she is available as a digi download on her own or as a part of the Pretty Sweet CD collection.  All the papers on this make where also from the Pretty Sweet collection but I printed them on grey scale on my printer so they fitted the monochrome theme.

I coloured her totally with the cool greys from my markers and then stamped a postage stamp around her using London Grey momento ink.

I added lace (coloured black with my alcohol marker), flowers and some pearls to the design and added the Florence corner die from Tattered Lace.  Then as always (because I seem to be a little addicted to it) I added a few drops of perfect pearls :D

I really hope you like this make with Amelia Roses by Polkadoodles and thank you so much for dropping by :D

Happy Crafting
